Through an email I was saddened to hear about the recent loss and death of a young 21 year old. Her name was Victoria “Tori” Rubino.
The article states “Rubino had had her wisdom teeth removed by dentists in her hometown two days before.” The results and reasons surrounding her death are still not clear. Hopefully a reason can be found soon.
My website lists other reasons as to why people have died from wisdom teeth removal, although typically it happens more suddenly than several days after the extraction.
